Search for Planning Information Using Online Mapping

Search for Hazardous Installations

Go to the online mapping system (Select map if there is no Category displayed).  Next, in Category:  select .PLANNING.

Left click on the HAZARDOUS INSTALLATIONS text and the map will load. Individual layers can be turned on or off by clicking the check boxes in the Map  or Raster Background menus, scrolling down and clicking Apply.

The map view may be restricted so you then need to search using any of the three white boxes at the top of the map screen. Enter a street address, with or without a name/number. Then using the mouse pointer left click on FIND ADDRESS button.

From the form displayed choose an address, and left click on Show at the left side of the table.

A map will then be drawn including that address. You may need to zoom out to look around the area.

As you zoom out the map background changes to the raster background to enable faster loading. You can turn this background on or off using the check box in the Raster Background menu.

If you scroll outwards you can get an overview of all the Hazardous Installations in Hyndburn. The lines around the sites relate to Inner Zone, Middle Zone and Outer Zone, which indicate the degree of hazard as determined by the HSE.

Any planning applications in any of the Zones are assessed using the HSE’s online land use assessment system. View the HSE’s  web assessment system on their website.
